    Compact dual wifi platform


    Hi,

    I'm thinking of a project that would require a linux-based server w/ 2 wifi cards. I'd like it to be as compact as possible. Can anyone suggest any platforms I can look at?

    BTW. my intentions are to put a LAMP server that can support roughly 200 users.

    Thanks,

    You can get USB WiFi dongles that are pretty small; I have a Netgear one that is about 3in by 2in by 1/4in. Since size played absolutely no role in my selection process it's possible that you could find one that is smaller. You'll want to be careful with drivers though, historically Linux support for wireless adapters has been very bad.

    Ubuntu but, as long as I can get a LAMP stack going it shouldn't matter.
